Historically less emphasis has been put on the importance of attitude factors than on the skills of reading. When defining attitudes as a person's views, interests, expectations, and so on, attitude toward reading is a combination of all components that contribute to a person's underlying disposition to reading including expectations, interest, appeal of material, and personal satisfaction. One way to group these components is to consider the characteristics of the reader (internal) and the characteristics of the situation (external). If both components can be independently positive or negative then it would be possible to consider the effects of internal or external factors on the reader's skills. Four techniques are available for measuring attitudes: attitude scales, self-reports and interviews, the semantic differential, and the repertory grid. The planning of a reading curriculum can be aided by the use of attitude analysis to learn what should be emphasized in a particular group or among readers generally. This might be especially important if it can be shown, for instance, that readers who have negative attitudes toward internal components and positive attitudes toward external components are poorer readers than those with opposite attitude scores.
